We saw all kinds of flora and fauna and learned tons about the area. If you are looking for a guided adventure, he's your... More

Omar knows his stuff! If you want to enjoy a great tour then I really recommend Omar. You will see and learn at the same time. We always send friends to him when they want a tour that doesn't miss a single animal, bird or reptile in the jungle.

I recently went on the tour of the Manzanillo Gondoca National Wildlife Refuge with Omar of Bucus Tours. It was an incredibly experience. Omar was an amazing guide. He taught us the history of the town, the refuge and the area as a whole. He made the entire trip very personable as he told jokes and was very down to... More

We recently went on a tour wth Omar and we loved him. He took us through the jungle in Gandoca Manzanillo, and because he is a native of Manzanillo he knew all the secret spots. During our hike we saw so much. I have to say, when Omar started talking to the howler monkeys, thats when we knew he was... More

We had zero expectations and were open-minded of our day with Omar. And WOW were we blown away!! Omar is so knowledgeable and truly knows and has lived through the history of... More

If you're going hiking in the Manzanillo refuge, seek out Omar as your guide. He grew up in Manzanillo and loves the place and the jungle around it. He makes a hike in the forest fun and informative and is charming. His insights and knowledge made our excursion a real treat. Highly recommended.

Omar showed up at the crack of dawn to guide us through the Manzanillo refuge. We were all amazed by his vast knowledge of all the wildlife, plants and lore of the area. Great animal spotting - no way we would have seen much on our own. Really nice guy too, funny and personable. Highly recommend.
